Spem in Alium

942621_528539570544360_1482756992_nThomas Tallis’ Spem in alium is one of the most extraordinary choral works ever composed.

Written in 40 individual parts, the piece is a sonic spectacular, and is one the greatest achievements of the Renaissance.

This concert features no less than three works for 40-part choir. Alongside the Tallis we will be performing great polychoral works by Bach, Victoria, Tavener, Striggio, Penderecki and others.

In the superb acoustics of Sacred Heart Carlton, this concert will be a truly unforgettable experience. Don’t miss out!
